  • If you are a fan of Zen, can architecture and quiet spaces, you will enjoy. It's a different kind of place. Very little to do.. only to "experience" Zen solitude and simplicity of design. 
  • Quietly located in forest of the Honda just down the road from the center of Kanazawa Museum. It's places to engross myself in quietly. The entire building and garden or pond is beautifully kept harmonized. It's hiding spot in Kanazawa want to teach. I note that no parking!
